Hot Dog Hash & A Fried Egg – Oh My Goodness!

Every once in a while, we completely throw all of our improving diet cautions to the wind and just decide to live a little. I also have a secret admission to share: I absolutely love breakfast foods. I have been known in the past to go into phases where I ate some form of breakfast for each meal. I know, terrible habits that we really are working on changing. We don’t really believe in the theory of “I’m never eating those foods again” approach, we practice the idea of an overall healthier diet with lots of vegetables, healthier fat options and fruit; but that you can still occasionally have those meals that aren’t the best – but with moderation. We should all be more cautious of the amount and makeup of what we are putting in our bodies constantly, but don’t be afraid to splurge every now and then. 🙂

While doing one of my recipe search sessions, I came across one of my favorite Iron Chef winners, Michael Symon, and could not have been more excited for his Hot Dog Hash recipe! I love hot dogs (especially Nathan’s brand – they are great hot dogs no matter how you make them) and everyone in the entire house go crazy for any type of a hash. To also be able to make a homemade version just kind of sounded fun!

The prep was not any big deal at all, just a little chopping and slicing. We followed the recipe but added a bit more hot dog (2 additional) as our potatoes were a little bigger than medium sized. Easy fix by adding a bit more meat and onion – but this did extend the cooking time a little bit. I really didn’t mind at all, the entire time we were making it I was whisked back to my grandma cooking fried ‘taters n onions’ on weekend mornings when I was a child. This is one of those smells that just conjure up happiness and warm memories for me. I added a couple of drops of Tabasco at serving, and hubby chose his go to sriracha red rooster sauce. We added a whole grain piece of toast to mop up any leftovers, and got quite a treat with the mango and banana slices with cinnamon.

Has anyone else tried this one? I know for sure this will be a quick and cost effective breakfast dish every now and then – and I’m about 95% sure the kiddos will love it as well!

I am sure you can use any type of hot dog, but I can highly recommend Nathan's - they are fantastic!

All prepped and ready to start cooking. A little chopping is all the prep you have to do!
